    AVG Anti-Virus?

    how long does it take to get the serial # from them once you register. I registered 2 hours ago and still nothing. Any ideas?

    What email address did you enter in the registration form?
    Was is webmail or your own?
    I ask because rarely is the download complete and you are out of the site before it comes.
    Check again. If it isn't I wouldn't worry too much. Just re-register it tonight.

    Must have been something wrong with the issuing of the number.
    Hope you enjoy the program. I know it works.

    yeah it could have been a little glitch in their system. thankfully though its all squared away now and running in my background. i must say i like some of the features it has and the ease of use to set them up.

    Now that AVG is up and running and you are happy with it's performance you may wish to see what happens when it detects a virus.

    Get the Eicar Test files and follow the directions of use. You should be able to get the link to these files from one of Ken's infoposts.

    They are quite harmless but they will be detected and the experience is great for learning more about the program.

    Also, if your level of paranoia says that you wand to run more than one AntiVirus program then AVG will run happily with InnoculateIT PE and many other programs. The good thing about the combo mentioned is that they will run fully configured without conflict.

    Hope this will help your learning curve. .
